We’ve had quite a few requests to share more “work style,” so we’re bringing you two office looks today – one for a casual office environment, and one for a business casual office. We’re both wearing the same pair of Express pants in different colors, and are kind of obsessed. They’re so comfortable, flattering, and can easily be dressed up or down as we’re showing you today!
When I was in the corporate world, I worked in a couple different offices – one was business professional (uhg, hated having to wear a full suit every day!), and the other was business casual – much more appreciated! I pretty much lived in black pants like these (I love an ankle pant), and just rotated blouses and sweaters. Now that I work from home, I’m usually in sweats and baggy tees ;), but when we have events or meetings with brands, we want to look put together while still showing our personal style. This is a look I would wear to a meeting (or brunch/happy hour/drinks with a girlfriend), and could definitely be worn to an office with a casual dress code as well. If you like the look but have a business casual dress code, simply throw on a pair of loafers or pumps and sub a blazer for the denim jacket and you’re set!
I’ve been looking for a denim jacket with either embroidery or patches, so when I saw this one online I had to add it to my cart! I love the oversized fit (I’m wearing a XS), and the patches are perfect, not overly crazy. Meggan and I both bought this tee (in a small), and agreed it’s our current favorite…so soft and the ultimate boyfriend fit.
Express has so many basic pieces for work that are perfect for mixing and matching. My vest and tank (it comes in a few different colors!) would be cute with the pants Brooke is wearing for a sleek look. The vest is my favorite. I threw it on with jeans, sneakers and a tee and it looked SO cute! It really makes an outfit come together, business or casual 😉
These pants have 5 stars with over 100 reviews online – after I read them I had to order! They really do live up to the hype. The fit, style, and length are great…I definitely would recommend them. I’m thinking about getting them olive green too.
